Special offer this weekend for residents of Gloucestershire

On Easter Sunday in 1956 Mr Berkeley opened the Berkeley Castle doors to the paying public for the first time in history. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of this, residents living with GL postcodes will be able to visit the Castle at a similar rate to what would have been charged all those years ago.... 2s/6d!

This Sunday 24th, Monday 25th, Tuesday 26th & Wednesday 27th April, upon supplying a Utility or Council Tax Bill to the ticket office, GL residents will gain entry to the Castle & Gardens at the discounted rate of £3.50 per person. 

A special Memory Board will be on display in our Education Room where visitors can look back on memories from Berkeley Castle's history, including old newspaper clippings, old account books and historic staff records. 

Available from Sunday 24th - Wednesday 27th April 2016 

We want to hear and see your memories too, so please do bring in copies of memories from your visits to the castle, whether that is original tickets you may have kept hold of, an old guide book or photographs from past visits. 

Lily & Violet Vintage from local town Dursley will also be displaying three vintage dresses for visitors to see. 

The Castle will of course be open to visitors from outside the Gloucestershire region on these dates, normal admission prices will apply. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Castle and celebrating a fantastic sixty years of being open!
